The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of a Western Kentucky man who pleaded guilty in 2010 to killing three children and attacking their mother near Fort Campbell. 

The high court today found a judge committed no errors in allowing 41-year-old Kevin Wayne Dunlap to admit to the killings in Roaring Springs and have a jury decide only if he would be condemned to death or face a lesser sentence. 

Dunlap pleaded guilty to stabbing and killing 5-year-old Ethan Frensley, 17-year-old Kayla Williams and 14-year-old Kortney Frensley when they returned home from school on Oct. 15, 2008 near the sprawling Fort Campbell military installation on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.
